Any wall in your house is the place where your imagination can be put to work. You will be better of selecting plain, one color wall for the painting. That way all the attention will be focused on the piece of art that you hung up there. Recommended height for the best view of the painting is the same as in the museum – 4’9 – 5’0 ft. For the most convenient viewing of the painting it has to be placed at eye level.
When it comes to the subject of the painting it definitely should bring peace, tranquility and comfort. So please don’t hang in your room the painting of nuclear explosion or the scene of a successful hunting outcome of tiger on unfortunate gazelle. Painting of some sort of monster or violence scene will also unlikely be able to lift your mood and help to unwind after a busy day.
The most effective place for the wall art would be above the fireplace or sofa, the headboard or dining table.
Bedroom wall décor requires tranquility. Beautiful landscape with fir trees, pine trees, a river, the starry sky, floral field would be a perfect wall décor. The main thing is not to confuse peace with sadness: a picture with the sucking bog and fallen trees would be a bad choice.
For the kitchen wall décor still life or landscapes would fit the best. Green meadows, delicious apples, ripe berries, fresh coffee is the great subject for the kitchen walls. This type of artwork will most certainly increase your appetite and set the right tone for the day.
Kid’s room is the place where fairy tale comes to life. Cartoon characters, fairytale castles and flying ships, all of those dreams that your child might have, should be brought into his/her personal space. Let the paintings help your child dream more and grow with hope because that’s what his/her favorite character or scene depicts.
In your living room you not only resting from work, but you also gather in here with you friends, hang out with your family, spend time reading a favorite book or watch your daily tv shows. This is “action”room in the house, therefore subject of the paintings can be dynamic. Hang large canvases in your living room or the one that consist of multiple pictures (2-piece set, 3-piece set, 4-piece set or even 5-piece set). Your living room wall décor will be perfect with canvas of lights of the big city, waterfalls, uninhabited island, etc. Or you can pick a few smaller canvases in the same style (for example, black and white photos look great next to each other, if placed in a chaotic manner). The main thing is not to go overboard with the quantity of paintings. A big number of wall art in one room will visually reduce the space and distract.
Dress your walls my friends!
